GANEing traction: The broad applicability of NE hotspots to diverse cognitive and arousal phenomena

Mather, Mara ; Clewett, David ; Sakaki, Michiko ; Harley, Carolyn W. (2016)

The GANE (glutamate amplifies noradrenergic effects) model proposes that local glutamate–norepinephrine interactions enable “winner-take-more” effects in perception and memory under arousal. A diverse range of commentaries addressed both the nature of this “hot spot” feedback mechanism and its implications in a variety of psychological domains, inspiring exciting avenues for future research.
